General Board / Attention Midwest drummers!

There will be a Drummers Day Out in Indianapolis on, Sunday July 20th. The event will be held from 11-5 at The Knights of Columbus Hall located at 2100 East 71st Street in Indianapolis. This event has been ongoing for 10 years and attracts players, collectors and enthusiasts from all over the Midwest. There is no admission, we only ask for a donation to cover the cost of renting the venue. We will have raffle prizes and giveaways throughout the day. This is not connected to any commercial entity and is solely intended to bring drummers together. Next to the Chicago Show, it's probably one of the largest gatherings of drummers in the area.
Bring some drums to display, sell or swap. If you would like a table, please contact me via email.

Hope to see many of you there!
So ... during his set on the Glastonbury stage this past week, Jack White "rocked out so hard" that he threw away his guitar, knocked over the drummer and fell into the drum set himself. Idiot antics or genius showmanship?  ::)

If you were the drummer, what would you have done after this happened?

Thanks Bart,

I did a bit of research and read arguments for/against steel wool, but I think it may be the only thing for it.

Any other ideas about these cases though guys? Could that really be what's done it?!

I have used WD-40 before, but it tends to create a bit of mess - maybe I've been using too much in the past.

In any case, I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for sharing, Bill.

If anyone is looking to improve their hands and technique, I highly recommend subscribing to Bill's educational site, DrumWorkout.com.

Also be sure to pick-up Bill's book, Stick Technique the Essential Guide for the Modern Drummer

I use Cinch and #0000 Steel Wool when cleaning my hardware ... removing the residue left by the environment and my hands. This helps prevent the pitting as well. DO NOT USE THE STEEL WOOL ON THE SHELL. This is only for the chrome plated hoops/rims. Be mindful of the plating, and make sure you don't peel any off as you work the small rusted areas. The rust will come back, even if you remove it, because there is no longer any plating there to protect the metal.

I'd go to the hardware store and look at the products offered for cleaning rust. Whatever you use, go with very small amounts and work a small area at a time. The little bit of rust work I've had to do ... I've used WD-40 and my #0000 Steel Wool, and had positive results.

Oh and if possible, is there a remedy out there for saving the cases?

And what is best to clean early rust from drum hoops?
